The Editor’s Resignation
by Jason Tomlinson

Growing up I lived everywhere it’s just how my story played
but I always wonder what it would’ve been like if I woulda stayed
in just one place ‘stead of moving every fall
but honestly I can’t stand that thought at all
cause there’s not one person I want to erase
I don’t wanna cross off the address of one place
even in those places where I barely remained
even they lead to something gained
even they had a blessing for my mind
before I moved on and left them behind
who am I anyway to wish for an edit?
He’s used all of it so I give him credit
for using these experiences to make me me
so every day and everything was just as it was supposed to be
